A new survey from Staples Canada has found more than six-in-10 Canadians find shopping stressful

The survey also found most people still plan to shop in physical stores

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) –┬áThere’s lot of cheer this time of year, but all that holiday preparation can also be a little overwhelming.

A new survey finds more than six-in-10 Canadians find holiday shopping stressful, with struggles that include a lack of inspiration for gifts, and uncertainty about whether the person they’re buying for will like what they have chosen.

Those findings are from a survey released by Staples Canada, which also finds nearly half of us find it hard to shop because of busy schedules.

Despite the lack of time, the survey found many still plan to check off the majority of the items on their list by going to physical stores.
